Paranorman is the second stop-motion animation film from LAIKA, the creators of 2009’s critically-acclaimed Coraline. Featuring the voice talents of John Goodman, Jeff Garlin, Leslie Mann and Casey Affleck, among others, Paranorman is the story of Norman, a zombie-obsessed social outcast who can communicate with spirits.
In Laika's ParaNorman, the latest stop-motion animation feature from the studio that brought you Coraline (2009), no eyelash is batted — and no single hair is out of place — without a purpose.
Welcome to the latest in a long line of Mr. and Mrs. Smith clones. It has been five years since Doug Liman’s clever little action flick graced the big screen, and as while it was the most energetic and entertaining takes on modern married life in recent memory it had the unfortunate side effect of every half-assed husband-and-wife-try-to-hurt-each-other-but-they-love-each-other-really clone suddenly greenlit in its wake.
